Back to School for Opera Parallèle means preparing to celebrate national opera week at the California Academy of Sciences on November 2nd.
Opera Parallèle will team up with a group of SFUSD elementary students and the California Academy of Sciences to present a collaborative production of the children’s opera, The Spiders’ Revenge by Peter Maxwell-Davies. Written to be performed by young people, this engaging tale invites children to discover the wonders of the insect world and ultimately acknowledge that there is a place for each of us on the earth.
Artistic direction will be handled by our Educational Programs Manager, Roma Olvera, under the guidance of Opera Parallèle’s resident stage director and concept designer, Brian Staufenbiel and Artistic Director and Conductor, Nicole Paiement. The production is part of our Hands-On Opera Program made possible, this year, with the generous support of the Kimball Foundation.
Where: Forum Theater, California Academy of Sciences
When: 1 p.m. November 2, 2013
Tickets: Free with a CAL Academy addmission
